Renée Fleming on this performance: Riding the crest of successes in theater, film, television, journalism, and music, this unexpected pairing of performers has so much going for it, I can’t wait to see this show. Famous for his Broadway, film, and television career, Olivier and Tony Award-winner Alan Cumming is perhaps best known for his Emmy-nominated performance in The Good Wife; but he’s a successful author and a seasoned cabaret performer to boot. Ari Shapiro’s speaking voice is a household presence as a host of NPR’s All Things Considered, as well as a news correspondent whose reporting has earned the Edward R. Murrow award. On top of that, he sings, most frequently as a guest with the marvelous Pink Martini. Alan and Ari’s show title Och & Oy! hints at a cultural complexity that can only add to this novel partnership.
Join Kennedy Center Artistic Advisor at Large Renée Fleming as she curates a concert series that heralds the power of the voice.
